serves 4

Print the Recipe for Curried Bluefish with a cucumber mint sauce

ingredients

4 bluefish fillets, about 6 ounces each
1/3 – 1/2 c. fine white cornmeal
1 Tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped
3 Tbsp fresh mint leaves, minced
1/2 tsp jalapeno chili pepper, minced
1  1/3 c. plain yogurt

Create the sauce by combining the cucumbers, mint, jalepeno and yogurt in a bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired. Set aside.

Combine cornmeal, curry powder, salt and pepper in a low dish. Coat each piece of fish on both sides with this mixture. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat.

Saute the fish until lightly brown for about 3 minutes, skin side down. Turn the fish over and saute for another 2 minutes or until the fish flakes with a fork.

Put the fish on a platter and sprinkle it with the lime juice. You can either spoon the sauce over the fish or serve it on the side.
